Just wanted to pass along an update to the community regarding my contact with a dealership in regards to upgrading from My Ford Touch to Sync 3. I was just informed that it is possible, with the cost being $2000 CDN Dollars, which includes the installation from a Ford dealership and warranty from the aftermarket vendor for one year.

If anyone is interested in contacting the dealership that can help with this in Ontario, Canada - Please let me know. I can provide you with their contact details. #MyFordTouch #Sync3 #Upgrade #Infotainment #Ford #FordEdge #FordFocus #FordF-150 #FordExplorer #FordEscape #FordFusion #FordTaurus

Here's what Apple CarPlay will look like in Ford Sync3 Vehicles. Those that are lucky to have Sync3 in 2016 models will receive an update to enable this functionality. As more information becomes available I will post to the community. #CarPlay #Sync3 +Ford Motor Company #Infotainment #CES
This year, Ford is adding in four compelling new ways to better connect to your SYNC 3-equipped Ford, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 4G LTE connectivity and a bouquet of new AppLink™ apps.

Issues/Problems  - 
 
I wanted to share my latest issue with MFT. Navigation seems to be jumping around every minute or so when I am driving or at a stop. It has been pretty distracting. I'm hoping it's not the GPS module becoming faulty. I've been discussing the issue over on the Ford Edge Forums if anyone has experienced this or has any solutions. Please feel free to chime in!

I took images of the process for updating to 3.8 for anyone that is curious to the procedure for updating. Don't mind the fingerprints that are on the screen, this is what happens when you don't have a screen protector on a plastic screen. Hopefully those updating will find this useful. Share your experiences updating and let us know if you run into any issues! Happy updating! #MyFordTouch   #Sync  +Ford Motor Company  #FordEdge   #FordFocus   #FordExplorer   #FordMustang   #FordF150   #Infotainment   #Update

However the iPhone on version with unlocked all antennas available was nice to have multiple carriers sim and pop in which ever antenna was best. That was truly remarkable and while the s4 can do it it doesn't do it as well.

Update news everyone! Looks like Ford has released an update to 3.8 for almost all GEN2 users. I have a 2011 Ford Edge SEL and there is an update available for me at Syncmyride.com - Hopefully everyone else is able to update their vehicles and provide feedback to the process. I will do mine tomorrow. #Software   #Update   #MyFordTouch   #Sync   #Ford  +Ford Motor Company

We're all aware of the release of Sync 3 hardware on new vehicles. I contacted a Ford dealership to let them know about a person that did the hardware swap in a 2013 Ford Taurus. He looked at the images and told me that he can look into ordering the hardware for Sync 3 and let me know the cost by the end of today.

I think this is great news for all of us that have a Ford vehicle with the full My Ford Touch. I will update once I hear back from him!

Android Auto with Sync 3 on the updated platform that will enable users to choose between Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the Sync3 software that Ford customized on QNX platform. Interesting to see Ford provide insight and future details about updates before they are released. This is a welcome change from all of us with My Ford Touch, where previews never happened. Thanks for the information +Ford Motor Company #Sync3 #CarPlay #AndroidAuto #Infotainment #NAIAS

Ford has followed up its recent introduction of the third generation SYNC infotainment system with the announcement that it will come standard on all 2017 models and will include both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Thinking of taking the plunge and trading up to a Ford F150 Truck. With a Sync 3 system. Does anyone else have any reviews of their experience with a 2016 Ford that is equipped with the newest #Sync3 software? #Feedback #MyFordTouch #FordF150 +Ford Motor Company #Infotainment #Tradein

I tried the Sync3 system and have to say I am really impressed by the level of responsiveness. Along the lines of how fast my phone responds when tapping and dragging across the map. The voice recognition picked up my navigation command the first time and I screwed it up by saying the wrong city and it auto corrected without input. I didn't try pairing my phone and seeing what Spotify looks like but will next time I go to the dealership. I have a strong feeling that more people will feel like Sync3 is similar to a phone in the way of responsiveness and will improve quality scores for Ford vehicles. Nice job +Ford Motor Company#Sync3 #Infotainment #NewCar

First time here, plenty of burger toppings to choose from. Especially when there are recommended pairings with beer and wine for every burger on the menu. Great atmosphere and service. Wish I lived closer to enjoy more.

Signs for discounts on products exclude clearance items. As a typical customer I was unaware what was and was not clearance. Apparently anything ending in .97 or .98 is clearance. I guess customers are expected to know the pricing at the store to know how sales work... many tags are missing here and are nowhere to be found.

Best club house sandwich! The gravy is very delicious. Best known for their chicken delight wrap.

Food was delicious, service not as friendly. Lunch isn't that busy if you need a place to eat.
